Tapeworm infection is indicated by the presence of tapeworm segments passed with the feces. Tapeworm segments are white, pinkish-white or yellow-white and similar in size and shape to flattened grains of rice. The segments are most frequently observed lying on the animal's droppings or, less often, moving across a freshly passed stool. Segments are also found on the hair around the anus of the animal, or occasionally on the anima's bedding. Dogs become infected with tapeworms after eating fleas or small mammals (rabbits, hares) which are infected with tapeworm larvae.

Tape Worm Tabs (praziquantel) tapeworm tablets will remove the common tapeworms, Dipylidium caninum and Taenia pisiformis, from dogs and puppies. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
FASTING IS NEITHER NECESSARY NOR RECOMMENDED.
RETREATMENT: Steps should be taken to control fleas and small mammals on the premises in order to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment will be necessary. This is especially true in cases of tapeworms transmitted by fleas (Dipylidium caninum) where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment.
If reinfection occurs, tapeworm segments may be observed within one month of the initial treatment.
Isolated incidents of either vomiting, diarrhea, poor appetite, or listlessness have been reported following treatment, but were considered non-significant. If these signs are observed and they persist, consult your veterinarian.
WARNING: Consult your veterinarian before administering tablets to weak or debilitated animals.
WARNING: Keep out of the reach of children. Not for human use.
